The Waxing Inconjunct at the final degrees of Aquarius/Virgo brings you to a tipping point before the September 24th Aries Full Moon. There’s one more area of adjustment- something new and untested must be added to the existing details. It may be a complete oddity, but this weird little wrinkle somehow needs to be integrated with predictable, practical details.
The emphasis on final degrees (with the Sun’s move into Libra, and the Fall Equinox, later today) means this adjustment may be bigger than usual. You should feel a significant shift - a shifting of the gears.
Mercury gets a bit of a workout with some fractious aspects. Harmonious communication will be difficult today as painful issues come up. The first impulse may be avoid what’s awkward, or even project the discomfort onto someone else. Consider the true source of what hurts and accept that (for today) the perfect thing to say doesn’t exist. You can’t gloss over the embarassment, and the square to Vesta suggests that rigid focus on socially acceptable words may actually make it worse. At the very least, you could find yourself fixating so strongly on saying the nice thing that you end up saying nothing.
Mercury/Uranus ensures that the unexpected will leak out, no matter how carefully you phrase things. You may discover something surprising and out it comes before you realize what’s happened. Or, someone may throw you a verbal curveball. This is ok - it was never going to come out neat and pretty, so just roll with it.
Note that Mercury rules the Virgo Sun (involved in the challenging inconjunct) so information and communication today will really test you. Both Libra and Virgo want things to be “just so” but it’s not happening. Discard expectations of perfection and make room for flaws, awkwardness and surprises.
